“Fantastic Indian food”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

My first experience with this restaurant was fantastic and so was the second and third as well. I did try some different dishes, all meat, and they where all delicious and perfectly cooked. Everything was excellent - service, food, atmosphere - and the owner was sure everything was OK. I'll strongly recommend this restaurant if you like Indian food.

“Good”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

After reading some reviews I was all excited to go there, but to me the place was "just" a good indian restaurant. It's a bit far away from everything, so I had to take a taxi to get there. Overall I enjoyed the food, service was nice, ambiente was good, but it was not soooo special. I actually do prefer the indian in walking street, which is a bit more down-to-earth and also serves very good food at a fraction of the cost.

Dear Portrayal,

We are, with current traffic conditions, just 10 minutes away from Walking Street. We are situated on what was once called 'The Golden Mile' as there are top caliber restaurants on this stretch. The advantage of being situated on Thappraya Road is that there is plenty of parking space.

Despite escalating food costs, Indian By Nature has not, in nine years of operation, changed the menu prices!

We try to ensure that all our guests have a memorable experience when they dine with us. However, I'm sure that everybody, for some reason or other, will have their favourite haunt. Please do visit us again when you feel like a change of scene.

Culinary regards,
Av Khanijou

“Delicious as always”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We had a very good time last Saturday while celebrating my birthday. They made all kind of special vegetarian appetizers (because almost the whole group was vegetarian), which you normally don't find in Indian restaurants. Delicious. Main courses and dessert yummy yummy too.
The owner of this restaurant gives you a warm welcome and will make sure that everything goes smoothly.
Strongly recommended

“Best in Pattaya”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Certainly one of the best restaurants all round in Pattaya. The decor is lovely, without the usual tacky Indian style you see everywhere. I , being alone, chose the Non vegetarian Thali, everything, including the breads , was wonderful, maybe with the exception of the fish which was a bit soggy.
The lady owner is delightful, and it is so nice to speak to someone with perfect English, which is very important when choosing a meal.
Staff were polite and attentive.
Definitely a must on my best list!
